      @Pete, good Saturday to you even though Friday Events is still up. A thorazine IV drip is probably what all of us need after participating in the zombie blog. Have a great day.

    @bobcat(iah) you would be terribly missed and who would be the one to crack me up and spit all over the cat and computer screen. No we need you. Remember you have a trip to make to Arizona without a stop at Tent City.
    @banasy I will. She leaves tomorrow to drive up but at least she will be with her dad. With her crazy mood, that may not be the best. Those 2 are always at it. Now I have 4 cats staying at my house since her 2 are here with my 2.

    The amount of stimulus earmarked for green energy divided by the number of new green energy jobs as of June 1, 2012 = $15.6 million per job. That's too much per job in my opinion.

    Additionally, to date when green energy technology federal subsidies dry up green energy enterprises dry up as we are seeing with certain wind farms and electric automobiles in 2012.

    Cash for Clunkers was ridiculous, destroying good second hand cars while handing out $5000 checks to upper middle class people so they can buy new vehicles. Did anybody notice the price of gas going down because of Cash for Clunkers?
